An Odd Thursday; Rankings

Good Friday! Hopefully, it won’t be as long a day as Thursday was. I had to go to Memphis with my daughter’s class for a field trip, then I high-tailed it to Pelham, Ala., for the all-star games. Got home about 1 a.m. This afternoon, I’ll be at the Saltillo-Shannon baseball game; it’s a Region 1-4A matchup.

Speaking of Saltillo, the Tigers (6-4) broke into my baseball rankings this week, at No. 10. Will they avoid the upset bug today? On Thursday, No. 4 Oxford lost to county rival Lafayette County, 7-5. No. 6 Mooreville fell to North Pontotoc, 8-2, which throws those two into a tie in Region 1-3A at 3-1.

If you missed them, here are the rankings that came out in today’s Daily Journal, with records through Tuesday …
